Lantern/post lights

Okay I need help. I have 2 jobs right now where both customers want Lantern/post type lamps on top of pillars. I was looking for the lamps and only found one company that made them for $975 thats way way way out of the budget range. is there a cheaper alternative?

There are very few traditional coach or carriage lights that are low voltage. Use a line voltage fixture with socket converters and install an ELV transformer in the post/stem of the fixture. Get an electrician to do your 120v work for you.

I agree with James, often times you can find halogen and led bulbs in 12v as well in the e26 ( regular medium base Edison). but watch on the LED and make sure they run on 12v AC, as most 12v LED are designed for mobile homes and boats running battery power at 12v DC.

Every single major manufacturer of LED lamps produces very good quality 120V candelabra lamps now. Philips, GE, Toshiba are but a few. Stick with them for best results, and if you do go with 'no name' 120V LED lamps, be sure they carry authentic UL, ETL or CSA listings.

Ok, look. If you need instructions on the use of socket adapters you are clearly not qualified to be doing this work. Altering a UL listed 120v fixture for use in a low voltage lighting system is technically in the realm of a licensed electrician. I highly recommend you hire one to help you on this job. The worst thing you can do for your client, and for your reputation and longevity is to tackle more than you are capable of and then charge for it. Be a pro and hire a pro to assist.
